Brad gives first Love Island interview since exit

On last night's Love Island, the public voted Brad and Lucinda the least compatible couple.

As a result, they were forced to decide between themselves which one of them goes home and which one stays.

Brad sacrificed his spot on the show for Lucinda, and has since given his first interview since leaving the Island.

How did you decide who would leave?

Brad responded, "For me, straight off, I said, 'I’ll leave.'"

"I’m kind of hoping she [Lucinda] doesn’t find love in there, because maybe we can carry on from where we left off."

"I had a bit more time than her, so going off time alone it’s only fair that she got her fair shot at it."

Did you hope Lucinda would leave with you?

"On the night, it was one of them situations where, I didn’t want her to leave [with me]," Brad began to explain.

"The way we had a connection, it would be really nice to take what we had and continue it on the outside."

The 26-year-old admitted, "I woke up this morning and I wish we had left together."

"I want to see where that could have went."

"Not being able to speak to Cind, or ask her where she’s at, I want to know how she’s woke up this morning."

Will you still watch?

Brad responded, "Of course. I want to watch how my pals are getting along, lads and lasses."

"And then for me I’ll be keeping an eye on Cinds, seeing who’s going in there, see if they’re treating her well."

"I’m a fan of the show anyway, I’ll watch to see what’s happening."

He added, "If Cinds leaves single, I’ll be straight in her DMs."

"I’ll get myself down to Brighton and see if we’re going to go for an ice-cream along the beach."

Are you waiting for Lucinda?

Brad is unsure whether he should wait for Lucinda on the outside.

He weighed his options, "Do you wait for like six weeks, hoping that she isn’t [with someone] and then missing opportunities?"

"Or do you rush in and forget about Cind and move on… I’m in no rush."

The former Islander continued, "I didn’t expect to find anyone like her in there. To answer that question, I really don’t know."

"My gut instinct would be to wait it out, see where it’s at and continue on, just to see if it was a good thing."

He said, "It started off more than well. It was unreal. It would be sad not to see how it would go on the outside."

Were you surprised to be in the bottom three?

Brad admitted he was surprised to be in the bottom three, because he feels they were one of the most compatible couples in there.

"Everyone was commenting on how happy I looked, how happy Cinds was."

"Cinds was telling me how happy she was with me and vice versa. Everyone could notice it."

"I think if you were to ask the Islanders in there, who is the most compatible couple in there, me and Cind would have been right up there."

"Especially considering there was friendship couples."

"Unfortunately, mine and Cinds’ time as a couple got cut short."

Who do you think should have been in the bottom?

Brad thinks Sharon and Hugo or Aaron and Kaz should have been in the bottom three.

He explained, "because them two were friendship couples."

How would you sum up your experience in Love Island?

Brad gushed, "It was unreal. But, unfortunately, the main part of my experience got cut short."

"Before I met Lucinda everything was good, chilled. Lucinda walked in, blew my mind and from that moment I was buzzing."

"I was waking up each morning wanting to be around someone’s company."

What would you say to people who have criticised your ‘chat’?

"I’ll talk for days, sometimes people might have to butt in."

"As for questions… If I’m not interested in something, I’m not going to ask questions about it."

Who are your favourite Islanders?

Brad's favourite villa couple is Jake and Liberty.

He added, "Me and Jake get along well. Jake and Liam are absolutely spot on lads."

"I think I’ll miss them the most in there."

"And then there’s Cinds," he added.

"She’s just stunning and I’m gutted I’m not still in there waking up beside her in the morning."

Who is the untidiest Islander?

Brad spilled the beans, "Toby doesn’t do any tidying in there."

"Jake makes a mess, but Jake will tidy it up."

"Toby… he doesn’t even know how to make a bed."

If you could message Lucinda now, what would you say?

Brad replied, "Meet us outside the Villa for a chat… ha ha."

"I’d tell her how I felt this morning and put it out there that what we had was good."

"Waking up this morning, it was better than what I even thought…"

"I got attached to you more than I thought I had and leaving that night made me realise that."

"But if something can happen on the outside then great, continue that on."

"But enjoy your experience, you deserve it, you’re a good lass, look after yourself."
